The Wachusett Special Education Parent Advisory Council has nominated 64 teachers, aides, and school psychologists to receive the Wind Beneath Their Wings award. For 12 years, this award has been given to people in the district who go above and beyond the duties of their jobs to impact the lives of children in the Special Education program, according to Melissa Martin, a Paxton parent who chairs the advisory council.
“Everyone has their job and these people are doing more than is necessary,” Martin said.
Martin said that the nominees all exhibit “generosity, being sincere, and encouragement,” towards the children in their care. Each nominee receives a certificate and an Amazon gift card for their efforts. The nominees from across the Wachusett Regional School District are listed below.
